of the last 11 presidents, bush, clinton, carter and nixon, visited israel during their presidencies. both nixon and bush waited until their second term to make their trip. >>> so enough with the real news. let's gather round the water cooler with lewis. what have you got for us? >> we've never done this together. >> making tv history right now. >> did you have a good st. patrick's day weekend? >> it was nice, low-key. >> no guinness, no green beer? >> just the shot of the empire state building, green this morning. i forgot to wear green. what about you? >> i had a great time. >> you're still here early. >> yes. >> looking fresh, ready to go. >> here we go. the first story, the race is on in new york to replace three-term mayor michael bloomberg. there's over a half dozen candidates, even former congressman anthony weiner is exploring a bid. there's interest coming from the west coast, twitter co-founder jack dorsey is thinking about throwing his hat in the ring. the 36-year-old billionaire told "60 minutes" he's serious about moving to new york and running for mayor. >> what i love about
priebus is standing by live this hour. >>> ten years after the invasion of iraq, a bush white house insider is here to reveal the secrets of how america was spun into war. >>> and from gop power broker to cable news kingmaker, a new book pulls back the veil on the controversial fox news boss, roger. we want to welcome our viewers from the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> in an extraordinary look inward, republicans think they figured out what went wrong back in november. dissecting the election defeat, the gop has found that it is viewed as narrow-minded, out of touch, and full of stuffy old men. one calls for major changes in style and strategy, but how do they go about repairing a deeply divided party? cnn's brianna keilar is here in "the situation room," and she's taking a closer look at this report and fascinating material inside. >> fascinating material inside, and one of the things we're seeing in the republican party, what it's planning to do, is invest some serious money to build the republican brand in areas that are
of being scary? and then, i mean, former bush campaign strategist matthew dowd, he compared the cpac gathering to a flintstones episode, listen to this. >>> yabba dabba do, they seem rather depressed, and actually the contingent woman had it right. they did say they were unfortunately becoming the party of the rich as well. that was -- they have the problem diagnosed properly, it seems like they would like to point to just about anything else. well, it's technology, the outreach. they just need more surrogates to women, and they don't seem to be able to grasp, well, maybe it has something to do with the policies. this committee said we're not supposed to talk about policies, but if you ever want to win again, you'll have to reach out to women, latinos, minority groups, and then reince priebus gets up there and several of them asked you about it afterwards. and said i'm not getting behind xre hence reform. >> when you talk about the gop talks about change, but speaker boehner says i'm not changing in terms of same sex marriage, coming out with her statement, look at what speaker boehn
shows former florida governor jeb bush losing in a 2016 matchup with hillary clinton in his home state. hillary beating jeb in florida. that's amazing. and there's more. marco rubio, the republican's break-out star of the year, loses to hillary, too. he's trailing by 11 points. both would get pounced on their home turf. this is the political fallout. it rubs off on their candidates. joining me now is ed rendell, former pennsylvania governor, and susan milligan, thank you both for your time. >> absolutely. >> my pleasure. >> ed, hillary clinton beats both jeb bush and marco rubio in their home state? is it panic time for the republicans? >> sure. because she just didn't beat him in a poll last month. she beat him by two or three points. now she's beating him by 11 points. and these are the two florida superstars. and worse, marco rubio has fallen down to 21. that's happened in a short period of time. they both waffled on path to citizenship and, again, it's part of the gun stuff and part of the whole negativity of the republican party and this party's go the to understand, it's not the
, that it was dysfunctional, a reprisal of liberals and what they have seen as excessive conservativism in the bush era and back and forth, and a dysfunctional agency. so there are other people who are less controversial and as i say would share mr. perez's views. and picking perez is sort of like what they did with chuck hagel. they could have found someone who shared chuck hagel's point ever view who wouldn't have been as controversial as mr. hagel. >> megyn: and the ig's report found mr. perez, that he misled investigators on the new black panther case that it was not intentional, that he should have done his homework, but not that he knowingly lied. that was the ig conclusion. however, they did back up the allegation that there is a racial hostility when it comes to enforces the civil rights laws equally where the defendant in the case is black and the victim in the case is white, that there's a racial hostility within the doj when it comes to those cases and that in fact that exists under mr. perez's civil rights division, as it did prior in the bush administration. is it not less controversial th
talking to president bush 41 to ask him is he worried about the future of the republican party. he said look in 1992 after he lost, it took a while for republicans to get their footing but they did after two or three years. they come back in 1994, win big time. same thing in 2010. unshaky. clinton wins again in '96. come back and the republicans have the white house for eight years. there is something in this report that is interesting and bears a discussion on both sides, repeal of the mccain-feinstei-feingold law. it's intention of good but it hurts both to not spend money in the state. >> eric: bob, you must love that. the far right shooting to the center right and center right at the far right all weekend long. >> bob: i don't think priebus came up with off the top of his head. this is based on polling data. there is some truth to what some of the criticisms are. all you have to do is thereon cpac and you could not miss tuitions taking place in the conservative party. not the least of which is for years, national security has been the underpipping of the conservative republican -- u
. former florida governor jeb bush used last week's conservative political action conference to foreshadow many of the conclusions contained in today's report. >> we must move beyond the divisive and extraneous issues that currently define the public debate. never again, never again can the republican party simply ride off... write off entire segments of our society because we assume our principles have limited appeal. they have broad appeal. >> ifill: but senator marco rubio told the conservative meeting that the party should not embrace change for its own sake. >> and so our challenge is to create an agenda applying our principles. our principles, they still work. applying our time-tested principles to the challenges of today. >> ifill: yet the biggest hit at last week's conference hailed from outside the national party mainstream. they included kentucky senator rand paul, south carolina governor nicky haley and 2008 vice presidential nominee sarah palin. joining joining us now to talk about how deep the party's fissures go are susan page, washington bureau chief for "u.s.a. today." and
to some extent, ut then he created and repealed glass-steagall, and everybody blames it on george bush. the conservatives who didn't do much for the letter peace, we tried to expand under karl rove, the voting process, and giving more to hispanic community, and we didn't get one increase in vote in that eight-year period so. what makes you think that we're going to give amnesty and all the set get a bunch of votes? it's fraud, and it's another really ploy by the democratic party to keep promising and benefits to everybody who will vote for them no matter what. scommoip we're going to talk about immigration in our next segment of the "washington journal" today. but we still have about five minutes left in this segment, if you want to call in to give us your take on this growth and opportunities report that was released today, or if you think hanges in the republican debates would have helped republicans in the 2012 election. a couple of other stories to point out, the front page of the "new york times" today, tax credit or spending labels, but in congress, fighting words. host: we'll ta
don't get past the headlines, we should take what bush says with more weight. the thrust of the story should have been president bush said something, contradicted by his own government and that should have been the lead, the fact he was saying something that wasn't proven. again and again and again. colin powell, that speech he gave february 5th, 2003, everyone remembers that, you know -- >> swayed a lot of people. >> swayed a lot of people. the coverage was over the top. it was like writing about a rock star. then if you turned inside and kept on reading 20 inches in, you would find people saying wait a second, we don't know about this, we don't know about that. yeah. the people that dig deep can find this. i remember at the time there was a tide was hard to swim against. he would give that speech, then go on tv. >> you had some amazing moments on tv those days. >> a lot of fights. i said wait, the post, the times is reporting, i would talk, did my reporting, i talked to nuclear scientists about the aluminum tubes and they would say that wasn't proven. you would be laughed at. >> it
and launch the effort far sooner than either bill clinton or george w. bush did in their administrations. then it fell flat quickly. what was interesting to hear what the president said when he arrived formally as to why he made this his first trip of his second term. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> and he's going to be going to ramallah meeting with the palestinian authority there, the head there, abbas in the west bank. he's meeting with jord ab's king abdullah on this trip with mubarak not in egypt anymore, the single most important arab leader in the peace process if something happens. now president perez, he spoke about the peace process after the president spoke. >> we long to see an end to the conflict with the palestinians, to see the palestinians enjoying fraed freedom and prosperity in their own state. we extend o
from president bush to ken kuch nelly. once he got found out, they all tried the shake that money off themselves like it have a pack of fleas and when the press exposed him for appearing to take money for veterans, he split. he was a fugitive. he ran for two years when he finally got caught was in portland, oregon. he's now been extradited to ohio. he is slated to stand trial there next month under his roea name. john donald cody. of course, on our civilian desire to do something for themful before you go thinking this is just some weirdness that keeps crawling up out of florida, consider the last couple of years the news out of wisconsin. before scott walker became governor, his last job was being county executive in milwaukee. in milwaukee, he helped organize a local effort for veterans. an annual picnic at the milwaukee zoo. when scott walker made his decision of who to hand that work off to, he made a decision to hand that work off to others, he made bad decisions. the guy on the right was sentenced to a couple of years in prison for stealing $51,000 in money meant to go to vetera
. are going to make george bush the president of the republic now for quite a while, and we will continue that. e really only have 1 1/2 political parties in the country now. there is a misreading of the republican party in terms of what the problems were. the fact of the matter is republican party is the dominant political party from but the party5, ran out of gas in the summer of 2005, the effects of the war, katrina, people say, what is wrong with the republicans? they have had seven or eight years now where republicans are roaming around in terms of their future, and they are not closer now than they were then. the political parties cannot fix the problem of a party, but they have to avoid becoming a liability. the job of the political party is to make a flat playing field, so the future of either party will determine who the nominee is and the next president is. until republicans take the white house back, they will be defined as a congressional party, the tea party, great for us, and whoever is the craziest person gets on tv and gets the attention -- that will not change for the next thr
of the arab world than we were in the last year of george w. bush's presidency. >> paul: george, you mentioned jordan. is king abdullah, be the next arab ruler to fall in that region? and what would be the consequences, not just for israel, but for our own interests? >> it would be a disaster, we'd lose one of the last few moderates in the arab world and israel would lose along its longest border and-- >> how much trouble is the king in? i know there have beenprotests, price of energy and so on. >> he has a financial crisis and he's vocally opposed by the muslim brotherhood and no longer has the backing of the tribe, traditional-- >> he's flooded from refugees and as is lebanon. >> paul: a good indication of how our stepping back has created problems for everyone there. questions surrounding president obama's controversial pick to lead the labor department. did thomas perez work behind the scenes to prevent the supreme court from ruling on an important race discrimination case? well you can see if the hotel is pet friendly before you book it, and i got a great deal without bidding. and where's
chavez. that is not an exaggeration. imagine what would happen if bush turned around and nominated the grand kliegle of the ku klux klan to a cabinet position where he would be deciding on discrimination lawsuits. that is exactly what's happened here. >> that's incredibly offensive. and now we're hearing gop senators vowing to block the perez nomination. why? because perez is a champion for voting and minority rights? it was his office that fought to block vote are i.d. in texas. it was his office that fought to have voter i.d. blocked in south carolina. it was his office that sued nerve joe arpaio for discriminating against latinos. he's a fighter for civil rights and as lake secretary, he'll stand up for the rights of the working class. thanks for much whatting. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> reince priebus. what more can i say? let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with that bridge being detonated down in texas. wow. that's what reince priebus, himself, is doing to the republican party. he talks about b
will be elizabeth colbert-bush, her brother is nobody other than stephen colbert. and president barack obama left the united states and currently en route to israel for his first visit to that nation since he took office. it comes on a day when disturbing news was bracking in the region. now, there are unconfirmed reports that earlier today, a possible chemical weapons attack was carried out in northern syria. and at this hour, both the assad regime and the rebels are blaming one another for the deadly rocket blasts that killed the at least 31 people and that included 21 civilians. now, according to reuters photographer who was on the ground, people were seen suffocating in the streets and the air apparently smelled of chlorine. it's unclear who is behind the attack, the white house is expressing skepticism over the regime's claim that it was the rebels. >> at this time we have no evidence to substantiate that charge and we're skeptical deeply of a regime that might make that charge given that the regime has lost all credibility in the eyes of the syrian people and the world. having said that we'
of overthrowing the regime of saddam hussein. at the start of the invasion president bush addressed the nation from the oval office. >> my fellow citizens, at this hour american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger. on my orders, coalition forces have begun striking selected targets of military importance to undermine saddam hussein's ability to wage war. these are opening stages of what will be a broad and concerted campaign. more than 35 countries are giving crucial support, from the use of naval and air bases, to help with intelligence and logistics, to the deployment of combat units. every nation in this coalition has chosen to bear the duty and share the honor of serving in our common defense. to all of the men and women of the united states armed forces now in the middle east, the peace of a troubled world and the hopes of an oppressed people now depend on you. that trust is well placed. the enemies you confront will come to know your skill and bravery. the people you liberate will
to the first president bush and welcome. >> good to be here. cheryl: this was planned by the white house and mr. president to show the spanish speaking population of this country that he cares about this issue. this has got to point to the immigration debate encompassing washington right now. your thoughts. >> well, what does america need more than anything else? it needs robust economic growth and aggressive job creation. there's nothing about his background that would suggest he can make much of an intellectual or intelligent decision in the job market. i think he shows us that he speaks spanish but he spent a career either in government or as a civil rights lawyer or as an academic and nothing about his background suggests that he has ever hired anyone, that he's ever worked in the private sector where the jobs are going to come from so perhaps he's been put in the cabinet for some periphery refasons but it's a disappointment that the labor secretary obviously isn't part of an economic team that is charged with economic growth. cheryl: can you be more specific with the holes in his resume? >
hook a ball behind some shrubbery and blame an actual bush for once. that's what i'm happy about. i don't mind if he goes golfing. i wish he would stay golfing. it's when he is done golfing that i have trouble. tiger said he was a good putter. that surprises me because in real life it seems to me he is always asking for gym mys. i guess some days you are out there on the course, billy. the hole just looks as big as the area whereby deb's brain is supposed to be. some days you can't just miss. >> so you don't have any problem with the president recreating with mr. woods who dubious resume. you don't see any problem there? >> what business is it of obama's? he he doesn't care. >> bill: if the litmus test is a president can't hang around with anybody with personal problems he is going to be real lonely in washington. [ laughter ] >> seal yourself in carbon night like hons solo. ♪ ♪ o say does that star-spangled banner. >> bill: i do want to know what miller thinks about this lip synching bill. >> i think if an individual wants to lip synch, i have no trouble with that. >> bill: all rig
marriage equality. that's up some 40 points from where it was in 2004, where president bush ran a whole campaign on defaming gay people and passing state initiatives -- >> bill: yeah, to put it in the constitution -- >> that was the strategy to win in those states bring his voters out, vote for him and of course on marriage equality. so those numbers are going up among all groups even conservatives now some 30%. when you see they started at some 14% in 2004 you see growth. you see growth in the 65-plus senior citizens. evangelicals were at about 7% in 2004, now they are in double digits. so support is growing. it's really remarkable and it has to do with what happened last week, at least in part with rob portman. this idea that as society becomes more accepting of gay people and gay people start coming out there is simply no choice for parents, for family members to embrace the people they love, to support who they are, to ensure that they have equality under the law that they can marry who they love just like their straight counterparts. >> bill: isn't there s
'm fascinated by is the doppelganger. laura bush a week or so ago was featured in a big ad, a group you support for marriage equali equality, she was listed as one of the four -- in the upper right side -- a major figure along with colin powell, an e dorser of marriage equality. later that afternoon around 5:00 eastern, she withdrew her name from it and said you can't use my image, which she can't -- it's a fact, so they can't say it wasn't true. i find this still a partisan issue. i find it something that's troubling for the republicans and a big plus for the democrats. i think they've really chosen sides. your thought on this issue of equality? >> i agree. i think this is a foundational issue that will divide the two parties. i think secretary clinton getting out there and doing this now makes it clear, i don't think there could be anybody running in the 16th primary who don't support marriage rights. it feels to me like that would be a really dangerous place to be. and so i think it's significant that chad says she reached out to him. this is really her first political act. now that she's al
start a war? >> you want to know -- i want to know you dismiss diplomacy. >> sean: under george bush or ronald reagan, can i see a president doing nothing time and time again and the only people he seems to be nice to are radicals like mohammed morsi. >> we've got gon to the oouts united nations. some times oh, good grieve. he's aloud himself and hope the united nations is going to somehow stop or north koreans. they've done it. iranians will do it, too. and this is unless they impose kinds of sanctions if have you a business doing business with these countries dmoukt business in the united states. >> do you think the world by these acts after gregs is how i view them, do you they they perceive barack obama as weak? >> they're hoping for leadership from the front. they're not getting it today. >> nobody thinks america is weak. anyone who does needs to look at what we did. we have put men on the ground. and accomplished our mission. it's time for the american foam say enough of the war. >> i see him as weak. i think the president is weak. that is a shame. because do you know what? ame
, a fundamental change from 2005, 2006, 2007, when that went down to defeat bush in the second term. >> thank you. sure do appreciate you. >> thanks. >> we are learning more about marines killed in a training exercise in nevada. family members say one of the victims was just 19 years old. from pennsylvania. another 21-year-old from ohio. he was engaged. another 23 years old from connecticut. all of their names are expected to be released tonight. nbc's miguel almaguer with more on that. >> the military still doesn't know what went wrong here in an accident that left at least seven servicemembers dead and another eight injured. this incident happened late monday night when the military says a 60 millimeter mortar exploded inside a launching tube here at hawthorne army depot. some of the service members were killed at the depot. another pronounced dead at a local hospital. today vigils for victims were held. not just here in hawthorne but also at camp lejeune in north carolina where this unit was based. at 7:00 eastern, we expect the names of the victims and those injured to be released. craig? >>
and political hostilities in the department that went back before even he was there. they began in the bush administration but the suggestion is he didn't do enough when he took overt civil rights department. >> peter, the president about to leave the white house to go to israel tomorrow for the first time as president. and he had said in the past that he only wanted to visit the country if there was something concrete to accomplish here. so is there, or is this more about optics? >> well are there's a lot concrete to accomplish. it's unlikely any of it will be accomplished during this trip. he's only on the ground in israel 48 hours. he will make stops in the west bank. he'll first visit with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel, and then go to the west bank to have meetings with the palestinian authority mahmoud abbas. and he'll also stop in jordan having had a conversation with the former ambassador to israel, he suggested one of the real challenges for the president on the trip that will be defined or will be defined more by symbolism than by substance. according to him, the
. and the only swift is embracing comprehensive immigration reform. which if you recall george w. bush campaigned on and it is abc as much a republican and democratic idea any ways so this idea that somehow, oh they are coming around on immigration. no they are not. they are just going back to a position they had abandoned. >> but if they do any research they would find out that hispanic voters are most concerned about general economic issues, health care, jobs -- >> hal: yeah, but republicans aren't -- so they have to sell it some other way. >> right. they are concerned about immigration but not more concerned about immigration than they were about general economic issues or issues that effect the community, and the fact that the republican party appears to be pandering by -- by stereotyping the community to the point if they get in on this immigration thing, hispanic voters are going to enmass some over to the republican party is what is so small minded about it. >> hal: it is embarrassing because the president comes out specifically and wants to make at it prio
of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large number of people and causes people to want to listen to her and be attracted to her. karl rove is right. he does not have that appeal. and worse yet is that he has a lot of egg on his face from 2012 including the meltdown in ohio. so if you go past the last victories, last thing we saw from karl rove was a total melt dunn. >> he's right, it's sarah palin. karl rove seems to know his place and he knows it's beh
. >>> well, we're learning this morning about a near diplomatic disaster during the bush administration. during the united nations conference in new york in 2006. a secret service agent's shotgun discharged just as iranian president ahmadinejad was getting into his limousine. the agent apologized profusely. ahmadinejad though just shot him a look as he got into the limo. >>> an outspoken supporter of syria's president is dead after a suicide bomb ripped through a mosque in the heart of damascus. dozens of people were killed. the preacher is the most senior religious figure killed in the civil war. his death a major blow to syria's embattled president. the country's main rebel group insists, though, it is not responsible. >>> president obama wraps up his visit to israel later today and meets with the king of jordan one of the u.s. top allies in the region. president obama took his case for peace directly to the israeli people. abc's john karl is traveling with the president. >> reporter: even as president obama came to the holyland to talk peace rockets fired into a gaza strip hit in a t
